No.  You will need approximately 800 lbs of Epsom Salts. We sell float salt on our website here. 

 

How much Epsom Salt is needed for initial setup?
800 lbs. (363kg)  We recommend buying an additional 50-100 lbs. for monthly maintenance. 

 

How do you heat and maintain heat in the Zen Float Tent?

Included with your purchase of the Zen Float Tent are two radiant heating pads that can always be left on to maintain the temperature of the water in between and during floats.  For more information please read this post about our radiant heating design here


How often does the salt need to be changed?

If maintained properly, the water and salt solution should last you anywhere from 1-3 years.  


How do you drain the Zen Float Tent?
We have designed the pump, with a quick attachment fitting that can connect to a hose, to pump the majority of the solution out.  A small amount of remaining solution will need to be manually removed with a small bucket or cup.

Does water leak when you enter/exit the tank?
No, water doesn’t leak from the unit, but when you get out, your body will be wet, like getting out of a shower, so a bath mat is a great idea. There may be condensation on the inside of the door when you open it, but thanks to the steep walls of the pyramid design, most will run into the tank.

 

Is the tent sound proof?

When designing the Zen Float Tent we really focused on a light-weight, thin walled design so it would be affordable, shippable, and easy to move. Even the most expensive float tanks don’t eliminate sound, they only reduce it. You’ve got to have a quiet setting if you want to float at home. Read more here. 


How do you know when you have enough salt in the water?
The best way is to use a Hydrometer which is included with the purchase of your Zen Float Tent. Salt is added until specific gravity is between 1.23 and 1.3.  More information about this can be found here. 

 

What about water maintenance?

We have designed the filter to take care of majority of the maintenance of the water. You can also find a copy of our water care guide and videos here

 

Does the filter and heating pad need to be running at all times?

We recommend leaving the heating pads running at all times to properly maintain water temperature and quality.  Your filter should also remain running at all times and should only be turned off while you are in a float session.  

 

How do I know when my float session is over?

Unfortunately, there is nothing built into the tent at this moment that keeps track of your float time. We recommend using the alarm setting in our My Zen App, using your phone alarm with a waterproof case, or setting an alarm outside of your tent that you can turn off manually. 


Is there a patent covering the float tent?
Yes we have submitted and we are currently patent pending.


Is the material BPA free?
Yes, we are taking every aspect of the materials into careful consideration more here.

 

Is there a warranty on the Zen Float Tent?

We want you to trust that anything you buy from us, we will stand behind. That is why we have a 10-Year Warranty on all manufacturer defects.  If we make a mistake in manufacturing, we'll replace it every time.

Mechanical parts are a little different, as there is a natural wear and tear like any machine and we can't say it will last forever. We can say, however, that we will replace any mechanical part that is faulty for one full year. It's our promise to our customers that anything they buy from us is made to last.

 

Is the warranty transferable if I sell my tent or buy a used float tent?

No, the warranty is not transferable and only applies to the original float tent owner. 

 

Where can I buy replacement parts?

All the parts included with the tent such as the filter and heating pad are designed to last. Other replacement parts such as filter bags, vent caps, etc are available for purchase in our online shop at an affordable price.  

 

Can the Zen Float Tent also be used for commercial purposes?

We designed the Zen Float Tent with personal home use in mind and commercial use of the tent will void all warranties.
